Hunan TV modernizes OB van with CRESCENDO

Changsha, China, June 2018: STAGETEC has equipped a second OB truck of Hunan Television. Hunan TV is a Chinese satellite television station headquartered in Changsha and achieves the highest ratings in the country after CCTV. Hunan TV has a total of five OB vans. An AURUS from STAGETEC has already been installed in one of them. Now Hunan TV has modernized another OB van with a CRESCENDO.

The renewal of the audio technology in the OB van had become necessary because the previous broadcast console was less and less able to meet the increasing demands of large productions. This was due to a lack of capacity on the one hand, and its rigid bus structure on the other.

The installed CRESCENDO, on the other hand, offers up to 96 input channels with 48 buses, for example, or up to 108 input channels with 32 buses, and its flexible routing solves all bottlenecks and configuration problems. The new console has 24 faders and is integrated into a NEXUS network. For maximum console performance, the STAR router is equipped with two powerful RMDQ DSP boards.

Due to the good experience Hunan TV has had with an AURUS in an OB van for years, the broadcaster again chose the Berlin-based manufacturer. The OB truck with CRESCENDO is used for important live events such as national congresses as well as for major sporting events and show productions.
